In the context of family travel is this focused on any particular age groups of children (infants, toddlers, tweens, teens, etc)?

Hi 84Fiero,

All elements from newborn to multi-generational. Travel with school age kids is where I'm at at the moment and is what I feel is the most under-represented, but I'm happy to go where the audience wants to!

The great thing about a smaller event is that we'll have time for Q&A based on your specific needs...thinking maybe a breakout session based on interests. I'm purposely trying to keep the price low to attract folks new to the hobby, but everyone can learn something (and I find value in meeting others in my same boat).

I've already heard from some great guest speakers, so I don't have to carry the load alone.

Not sure if I can/can't attend, but most certainly something that me and my family do frequently, even last minute often.

What aspects are you trying to discuss specifically?

For those who don't want to follow the click-bait, the event is scheduled for 23 August 2014.

That sort of detail - the date - is often useful to share when suggesting that someone "save the date" for an event.
